Valid point on Desire,but for me Isis,Hurricane and One More Cup make up for some of the weaker points,but I have to say I don't like him colllaborating on the lyrics.I like Street Legal,but it feels a little produced for my taste,on the other hand you can't not like a record with Changing of the Guard,New Pony and Senor on it.Blood on the Tracks has 10 songs on it and all are good,some better than others,but all good and it has Idiot Wind,Shelter from the Storm and Tangled Up, which would be a great career for most songwriters.That was preceded by Planet Waves which had 6 great songs on it Goin',Goin',Gone,Tough Mama,Something There is About You,Hazel,Wedding Song and Forever Young.He finished off the decade with Slow Train and while I have no use whatsoever for any religious dogma I do enjoy Gotta Serve Somebody and I Believe in You.A couple of others from the decade I like are Ira Hayes from Dylan and Man in Me from New Morning,and the unreleased Abandoned Love,I have a solo acoustic live version from the Other End in 75' with a bunch of different lyrics which is one of my very favorite Dylan pieces.So there you go,lots of 70's material for him to choose from that would /did make me happy.
Very cool story on the background of Every Grain,and I did like her version of Hard Rain,she has a beautiful voice as opposed to Joan Baez,I rather take a cheese grater to the genitals than listen her annoying shrieking.

Michael Grey makes a point, that even without his seminal 60's work, he would still be a great artist . And if you pick and chose from just the 80's, ( Every Grain, Joker man, etc. ) he would still be great artist .
I'm on and off with Joan, some stuff I really like, , but I still laughed at the "cheese grater" comment . And talk about pandering , listen to her song "Children of the 80's" that she performed with the Dead !

That is a very interesting concept,isolating just his 80's work and he is still a great artist and I would have to agree.I went through his 80's catalog and found 14 great songs.
In the Garden
Every Grain of Sand
In the Summertime
License to Kill
Man of Peace
I and I
I'll Remember You
Dark Eyes
Emotionally Yours
Brownsville Girl
Everything is Broken
Man in the Long Black Coat
Shooting Star

I was a little harsh on Joan,it's not that I don't think she is talented,but her voice truly irritates me.It has been a pleasure chatting about Mr. Dylan with you DD.
